welcome john grisham. (cheers and applause) hey, good to see you, john! thank you for coming back! all right. good to see you again. it's been about five years. how many books have you cranked out in those last five years. >> at least 12. >> stephen: 12 books? you and stephen king, do you have a contest going on or something like that? who can -- do you ever call him up and go "4,500 words today beyoch." >> no, but he'll call me up and say this is 48, you only have 30. but he got published earlier than i did. >> stephen: would you go back to being a lawyer? >> never. >> stephen: why not? >> i was starving. >> stephen: you must have sucked as a lawyer! (laughter) >> i had a lot of clients in prison. >> stephen: okay, this is one of the things i don't like about you, okay? you've got a new book here called "racketeer" all right? sure it's a great book. >> it's brilliant. (laughter) >> stephen: the dust cover is gripping so far. but in a lot of your books it's like these things are trojan horses to get me to like these liberal causes like homelessness or the death penalty and a lot of tim

(cheers and applause) you two have been on the bus with both campaigns. these campaigns are finally making their closing statements of this election. john oliver, let's start with you. what is obama campaign's closing speech and pitch to the american people? >> simply this, john. the obama camp feels the choice is simple. maybe obama hasn't been the president you wanted him to be. perhaps he didn't meet the high expectations he set himself. but the other guy, jon, is a total dick! (cheers and applause) i mean that. jon, he's a six-foot shaft with tiny ballses for feet. he may not fire you himself but you know that when he's looking at you he's unemploying you with his eyes. (cheers and applause) now, if you will excuse me, jon, i'm going to stare at aasif while he's talking, thereby dominating him visually. (laughter). >> jon: well, all right, seems like a relatively low-brow closing argument from the obama campaign. aasif, you've been with th
redesign and development upsdait. john thomas gave an update. this involves jefferson street from hyde to jones. the street is currently 37 feet wide and is one way with two traffic lanes westbound and parking on both sides of the street. the project will narrow the street to 24 feet wide with one traffic lane in each direction and no street parking. there will be no dedicated bike lanes, bicycles will use the street. this project was originally conceived as a shared public way where motor vehicles, pedestrians and bikes would all share the same surface, but has been revised based partly on the input from the blind focus group that mod had, revised so it will be a traditional raised sidewalk so the pedestrians are separated from cars. there will be a pedestrian accessible signal at jones and jefferson. the signals at jefferson and hyde are not signalized anyway and that will remain the same. there are ramps to some of the restaurants, mostly restaurants and stores, because of the change in level. in front of some of those buildings they will also install stairs to improve general

-prone area. our john gonzalez there this morning live with a look. john, good morning. >> good morning, cynne. that is still the concern here this morning. fairfax county police and fire have set up an emergency command post, if you will, here in the huntington shopping center. you can see there are rescue equipment here and fire trucks, even a city bus. that bus used to assist those evacuated last night. more than 100 homes had stood along cameron run here in alexandria, about 125 homes to be exact, were ordered to leave the area. this of course, a low-lying area very prone to flooding. in fact, there have been some serious flood problems in the past. several years here, many residents spent thousands and thousands of dollars to repair their damaged basements. now, the water level got as high as six feet during the height of this storm which is right at street level. the fire department did go around and shut off the power to much of the neighborhood as a precaution, but fortunately no reports of any major flooding. now this morning, we'r
? >> yes, exactly. we're taking your calls at 1-800-steph-1-2. we're going to be checking in with john fugelsang who is in manhattan. his power did not go out yesterday. but i guess everything south of time square everything lost power. >> you think about the weather and the actual impact of the storm, but i went through hurricane andrew in 1992 having grown up in miami, you go through a lot of these kinds of storms. when they are vicious like this there's really no way to prepare other than to hunker down and get your supplies in place. but you don't think about the downed trees and how long the power might be out. >> right. >> because the crews have to get to the sources, and that's difficult for them to do to restore power, and you think about the inconveniences of that. with andrew we were out of power for about three weeks, which is when it is really, really hot in miami people had to stay cool and in virginia where they have snow, you have to think about no heat. >> that's right. >> imagine that without any heat. >> a lot of buildings are heated with steam the

play you something that john mccain said today. he was in ohio supporting the gop senate candidate but said very nasty words about the president and the 9/11 libya attack. take a listen to this. >> this president is either engaged in a massive cover-up concealing from the american people or is so grossly incompetent that he's not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. >> karen, like many of us, we respect mr. mccain's service to this nation both politically and militarily, but is it really appropriate on a day like this to start giving a commentary about the president of the united states in those tones? >> and also it's just very disappointing, martin. i think this is the complete political transformation of john mccain that we've seen. i used -- like you, i have had great respect for john mccain and he knows as well as anyone, and condoleezza rice herself went out and made the point in terms of the things that happened in benghazi and that information was changesiing, th that's what's happening. you have to gather all of the information and try to put togethe

. pillpal. >> and i just realized i wore my boston shirt. prior to serving in boston john was the deputy general manager at bart and has worked in other cities as well so his transit management experience is considerable, and i just wanted to note that. i will just add a couple of things. i think john hailey covered many of the points. the one management is overall topic how to keep service on time. switchbacks are a technique in line management. i think the real key issue at mta is actual transit operator staffing and when they have fewer than they need there are problems with filling runs and having to make other adjustments so i think keeping operator availability at a high level, highering and training on a regular schedule is critical to running muni effectively. just as antidote last night after the game i was downtown. there was a lot of joy and celebration, but there was also a lot of muni delay that was unanticipated, unanticipatable. i understand that trains were stranded on the embarcadero. that power had to be shut down for safety reasons. there were a lot of services
you very much. and as john said, i do believe that mental health is more than just the individual, it's about creating community. and i feel very honored and very proud of the board of supervisors that you are acknowledging the importance of mental health in this city. i've worked for the city 23 years in mental health and i often come every budget year, you know, as john says to kind of fight or advocate for the needs of the community. and i live in the community and i work in the community, and i feel that a lot of times when the most stressed people in the city are suffering different traumas and the violence and the different pressures of immigration and other things, that they isolate in that moment and that when we can bring them back to community activities or partner with other agencies and schools and work all together, that's when we create more of a family and healing. so, thank you for acknowledging me and the need for mental health in our sector. so, thank you.
